The International Bird Rescue Research Center is producing a daily consolidated report of all the birds, mammals, sea turtles, and other reptiles oiled in the Gulf. You can read each day's update here:

As of noon on June 8, 380 birds had been found still living, and 622 had been found dead. Forty have been released in Florida. Any bets about whether they'll head right back to the contaminated areas that are their home?
